The hardest challenge for me is a simple one-layer card - I really want to add embellishments and ribbon!  So I set myself a personal challenge to make a one-layer card with no embellishments (glitter isn't really an embellishment, is it??)

This is my card for the Clean & Simple Challenge.  If you want another entry into the draw for the blog candy, then make sure you upload your card to your blog and link it here using Mr Linky below!  If you need some help with Mr Linky, just email us - we're here to help.

Really, it's just one layer!  I used the curly label punch to punch out the 3 shapes and used repositionable tape to hold them in place, then I added a faux tear down the middle by tearing a piece of scrap paper and also sticking that in place temporarily while I brayered over top of the lot with Kiwi Kiss!    I simply removed the temporary pieces and stamped in my images, coloured a few touches of colour and a little glitter (you have to give me something!).

Super clean, super simple, and super cheap (just 21 cents per card - can't get better than that!!)


  1. Very nice card, love the way it looks like torn paper. Very effective.

    As We Stamp is made up of Three of you, it would be great if you could put your name at the end of each post so I can see which one of you talented ladies made each creation etc...

  2. Wow that would be a hard challenge and I may try it myself tomorrow. Great job and you would never know that it was only one layer.
